Chinese Bronze Bo Bell

This is one of a set of Bo, of which a number still survives, made at the Jin State foundry at Houma. The decoration on the bell was made by using pattern blocks, so that exactly the same motifs, made with the same set of blocks, appear on several of the bells. Eastern Zhou period, 6th to 5th century BCE. From modern-day China. (The British Museum, London).
